Standing on the balcony ledge,
You surprise me with a kiss.
This is where we begin to dance on the edge
Because if you leave, everything about you I will miss.
Like the way you catch my eye
And tell me you love me
In such ways that make me sigh
And hope forever yours I’ll be.
Or the way you laugh at things I say
And how you make sure I’m comfortable when we lie
Side by side while our elbows touch.
The only thing I need to know
Is exactly how much
You love me and when it will show.
But all we have is now-
As the curtains are closing, we take our bow.
